Within The Ruins Premiere “Devil In Me” Video

Within The Ruins have premiered a new video for their new song “Devil In Me.” This track is from the band’s new album “Black Heart,” which was released today (November 27). Steve Tinnon commented:

“We’re extremely excited to release the video for ‘Devil In Me‘! The concept for this was something new for the band, and we all stepped out of our comfort zone a little bit to make it happen, but we’re very happy with how it turned out! The idea was to visually bring to life most of the lyrics in the song and tell the story of what it’s about. I wanted the viewer to not only hear, but see, the transformation I’m referring to, and understand the metaphors in the track. It was fun to be able to tell the story without a lot of musical performance to push it along, and we’ve been eager for everyone to see it!”

“We’re extremely excited to release the video for the title track to our new album, ‘Black Heart‘! We really enjoyed making this one and getting to tell a bit more of the story behind the music. It’s a very angry, personal song, and a lot of the tracks stem from what it’s about. It’s an important track in regards to the overall theme of the record, and we couldn’t be happier with how the video turned out!”

Within The Ruins Premiere “Deliverance” Video

We’ve been working on it for well over a year and really trying to zero in on what the new version of Within The Ruins was going to sound like, and we’re very proud of the new direction. ‘Deliverance‘ is a great representation of the darker, angrier approach we wanted to take and felt it was an appropriate first track to release. We can’t wait to release ‘Black Heart‘ and start this next chapter!”

Within The Ruins Release New Songs “World Undone” & “Resurgence”

Within The Ruins have released two new songs titled “World Undone” and “Resurgence.” These are the band’s first tracks with frontman Steve Tinnon.

Guitarist Joe Cocchi commented:

“These songs were both written over the course of a big transition period for this band. They have a unique vibe. Nonetheless, we’re more than thrilled to have Steve step up and take over on vocals.

It couldn’t be a better fit for us. We’ve known Steve for years through touring and it feels right to have his voice, personality, and creativity as a part of our bands future now.”

Tinnon added:

“I wrote these songs as a pair. I wanted them to go together. ‘World Undone‘ is about feeling like you’ve lost everything and your world has come crumbling down. You’ve been mentally and physically defeated, and no one around you even cares. Everyone goes through dark times where they just feel lost and don’t know what to do. ‘Resurgence‘ is the follow up to that scenario. It’s about making your way out of those difficult situations and coming out on the other side as a stronger person than before.”

Life can be a constant struggle, and I think that’s very relatable to a lot of people. But I want these songs to serve as a reminder that no matter how bad things seem, you need to keep pushing and keep fighting. Things can get better. Don’t give up.”
